Easy Applesauce Cake

Home | Recipes | E


  • 2 c Granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Applesauce (don't use the unsweetened kind)
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 ts Ground cloves
  • 1/2 ts Ground allspice
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Baking powder
  • 1 c Raisins (dusted with 1 teaspoon flour)
  • 1/2 c Chopped walnuts (optional..I leave out because of the kid's nut allergy...but better with the nuts, yum...)


Blend together in large bowl of mixer the sugar, applesauce, water, shortening, and eggs. When blended, and the flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. By hand, fold in the raisins and nuts.
Pour into a greased and floured tube or Bundt pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 60 minutes, or until the cake tests done. Coll about 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Dust with confectioners sugar or use your favorite glaze.
NOTE: I make this at Christmas and bake in mini-loaf pans. You can get about 6 from this recipe. Freeze, and then they can be used in your gift baskets...adjust baking time, of course.
